ELA Member Is Featured in New York Times Article on Medicaid Planning
- July 11th, 2005
ElderLawAnswers member Vincent J. Russo, an elder law attorney in Westbury, Long Island, was featured in a recent article in The New York Times (Sat., July 9, 2005). The article explains the concept of Medicaid planning and uses one of Mr. Russo's clients as a case example
"None of us is fully prepared for this," says the client, Adam Alberico, 58, whose parents required long-term care. "The cost is unbelievable. And who can figure out the rules and regulations? It's tough being old and it's tough being our generation."
For "tens of thousands of people like the Albericos," the article goes on, "it takes a visit to a lawyer's office to figure out how to qualify [for Medicaid coverage of long-term care]. There, the Depression-era elderly and their baby boom children are guided through a tangle of emotions and a thicket of ever-changing regulations . . . "
